Once only available as a limited edition chapbook from This is Horror, Joseph D’Lacey’s Roadkill has been released in a digitial version. It also features a previously unrelased afterward from D'Lacey, explaining Roadkill's genesis.
Two vehicles, stripped to the bare essentials, accelerate to 180 miles per hour on a deserted highway. Their journey along this dead straight stretch, known as the Final Five, will decide the fate of the drivers – forever. Only one hundred seconds separate them from the finish line as they hurtle towards their destiny, dreaming of glory.
But this is one highway they’ve never travelled before and neither of them knows what they’ll find out there. One thing is certain: every road has its obstacles.
From the press release:
Winner of the British Fantasy Award for Best Newcomer, D'Lacey is best known for his shocking eco-horror novel MEAT. The book has been widely translated and prompted Stephen King to say "Joseph D'Lacey rocks!". His other published works to-date include Garbage Man, Snake Eyes, The Kill Crew, The Failing Flesh and Splinters – a collection of his best short stories. Most recently released was the first in his Black Dawn duology, Black Feathers, published by Angry Robot. He won the British Fantasy Award for Best Newcomer in 2009.
